Now that we have setup our endpoint and a data collection has ran to discover our vCenter resources, its time to start carving those resource up for use…and fabric groups are the starting point. An IaaS administrator can organize compute resources into fabric groups by type and intent. One or more fabric administrators manage the resources in each fabric group. Fabric administrators are responsible for creating reservations on the compute resources in their groups to allocate resources to specific business groups. Fabric groups are created in a specific tenant, but their resources can be made available to users who belong to business groups in all tenants. To begin with creating our fabric group, we need to login as the IaaS administrator and navigate to Infrastructure > Endpoint > Fabric Groups. Click New
Enter a name for the Fabric Group. Add your fabric administrator. Select what cluster(s) you want to use for your compute resources. Click OK.
Now we have our fabric group created
Our next step will be to create a business group and create a reservation of resources from our fabric to assign to the business group.
